Overview of the Wisconsin Prototypic System of Reading Instruction in the Elementary School. Report From the Reading Project.
Although refinement and development are to continue, the Wisconsin Prototypic System is now at the point where it can serve as a basis for a reading program, particularly where there is to be strong emphasis on individually guided instruction. This report discusses the rationale and assumptions underlying the system and lists its component parts: an outline of reading skills, an individual skill development record that stays with the child from grades K through 6, prototypic exercises for the assessment of reading skills (reductions of the exercises are included in the report), the Wisconsin Expanding Inventory of Reading Development for use in group assessment of reading skills, and a compendium of materials and procedures. Inservice preparation of staff, grouping for instruction, and implementation in the multiunit school and the traditional school are also discussed. Further areas of research are suggested. (WB)
